For me, I would data log it (if you are into tuning), see what is going on. Most mechanics don't know what to look for either. They replace parts if there is codes.

Mine are 245 45 17's (on my GS400), mine are very quiet. What size do you have? Wonder if the wider rubber is quieter? I know as it gets wider the pattern changes some.

95% of the time according to my friends at dealers (1 GM 1 Lexus) the rotors don't warp, if ever. They do pickup brake pad material and that causes the brake pedal pulsation. I had the problem and...

They do sell sleeves/cap to add some dimension to the battery post. But I am not fond of them, they oxidize under them and cause issues in a few years. Mine had one, not sure when it was put on.
